Machine Knitting Level 1.
Learn the basic machine knitting techniques and stitches including cast-on, cast-off, stripe, increasing, decreasing, ribbing, and cables. You will put together a notebook of knit swatches. No need to own your own machine, Portland Sewing provides the machines and tools for this class. No experience required, just enthusiasm and desire to create your own knits in far less time than hand-knitting.
Machine Knitting Level 2.
Shape knits and make garments in Machine Knitting 2.
Learn advanced shaping and contouring techniques including godets, short row circular sections, short rows technique, bust shaping, oval shapes, and short row darts to add beautiful contours to your knitwear. You will construct a hooded sweater vest using these techniques as well as those from Machine Knitting level 1 on mid-gauge single bed machines and a professional linker. Curious about double bed knitting? You’re in luck! Introducing the double bed machine, you’ll learn how to easily make different types of ribbing as well as some circular/tubular knitting.
